    "Abu 'Abdallah ibn Battuta is celebrated as the greatest traveler of premodern times. The narrative of his extraordinary journeys from one end of the Eastern Hemisphere to the other stands, along with Marco Polo's book, as the most ambitious and informative work of travel literature of the Middle Ages. Ibn Battuta was born in Morocco in 1304, and he was educated as a scholar of Islamic law. He left home at the age of twenty-one to make the holy pilgrimage to Mecca. This was the first of a series of journeys that spanned nearly three decades, and which took him eastward to India and China, northward to the Central Asian steppe, and southward to tropical Africa." .."The book is based on Ibn Battuta's lengthy narrative of his travels and on Dunn's extensive research on fourteenth-century Eurasia and Africa. It is both a biography of an extraordinary personality and a study of the hemispheric dimensions of human interchange in medieval times."--BOOK JACKET.
